I have a corrupted SD Card whose filesystem is FAT32. I tried the following stuff but i am still able to see the contents in the SD card. I can neither add new files nor can i delete any files from the SD card. The contents seem to be locked within this SD card, similar to being locked in prison.
The things i have tried:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdc
It took around 5-6 hours to finish this, but i could still see the contents. dos
sudo dosfsck -w -r -l -a -v -t /dev/sdc
The verbose log said that dirty bit was identified and autocorrection of the corrupted bit has also taken place. But to no avail.
- I tried clearing and formatting the partition using parted and gparted as well, but the result was unchanged.
Can someone explain this? Why did
dd not work? Is there any other option other than buying a new SD Card?
